Hej Electra community,
I just got my device this week and really like all sides of this project. Great work electra guys and community!
I can finally concentrate more on my ears when programming the Ambika / Shruthi /… and the Channel Controls in Ableton with this controller.
The most used task for me at the moment is to switch between the three areas/sections on the touch screen to reach other controls and I was a little irritated, how it works…
So here is my first feature request/idea:
1. Can the touch areas – that activate a section – trigger everywhere?
At the moment I have to touch a control element in a section directly which I often miss on first try. To be able to touch everywhere in a section would be much easier/faster.
2. Can we set the three section buttons to activate on downpress?
At the moment they are a little bit slow, because they react on releasing the button. It’s a detail, but they are used so often…
3. Can we select the sections via midi ctrl?
I use an external controller (Faderfox LX1) to switch pages and presets fast with one button press. It would be great to also select/preselect sections via midi. I read that it should be possible with firmware 1.4 but did not find a documentation on this.
4. Bonus: Option to flip side buttons for selections left/right?
When I use the electra next to other controllers, it would be a nice option to switch the function buttons left/right, so that I can control easy with both hands on switches for the selections and pots, when one side is to tight. This could be also benificial for lefties.
Thank you for reading my thoughts and happy controlling
